Sleep is essential for helping your children’s body to recover, replenish and grow. Younger children need more sleep than adults do. They should be getting around 10-11 hours of sleep every night.

If your child doesn’t get enough sleep, this can leave them feeling grouchy and affect their immune systems, so they get ill more often. As well as helping your children’s bodies to recover and rest, sleep also benefits your children’s eyes and encourages growth. It also prevents their eyes from getting sore, red and bloodshot.
